"Developers who were intimidated by the move to the world of web development immediately turned enthusiastic with the new project in Visual WebGui because they could feel useful again." Toni Garcias, WinForms developer at OA6 whose team had to find a solution that would allow them to enable local and remote users to use enterprise information and give feedback and centralize and normalize information. The team evaluated Visual WebGui for building the integrated extranet/intranet tools for their system.
"We were trying different Asp.Net solutions with third party frameworks, but the learning curves were excessive for our needs", said Project Manager Toni Garcias and added that "We finally chose Visual WebGui because also VB6/Windows Forms developers without Asp.Net experience where capable of building VWG Forms and give it functionality in a very short time. Developers who were intimidated by the move to the world of web development immediately turned enthusiastic with the new project in Visual WebGui because they could feel useful again." Web designers and illustrators also found the way to integrate themselves into the VWG framework.
The OA6 team who worked with Visual WebGui stated that performance was fully satisfactory and since security is by design there was no need to work on additional solutions for securing the end points. They also admired the possibility to show homogenous information to extranet/intranet users, from very different local resources as MS Access databases, SQL Server databases, Excel files, digitalized files, etc.
